Conference on Climate Change & Agriculture: Impacts, Resilience & Adaptations for Sustainable Food Security

December 20, 2019 - December 21, 2019

The world’s climate is rapidly changing due to global warming and will continue to be severe in the coming decades and centuries ahead, and will pose major challenge for future agricultural scenarios to provide food and other bio-resources for the projected global 9 billion people by 2050.

The climate change will trigger variety of problems related to agriculture, and will affect all four dimensions of food security: food availability, food accessibility, food utilization and food systems stability. Further, will impact human health, livelihood assets, food production and distribution channels, as well as changing purchasing power and market flows. Its impacts will be both short term, resulting from more frequent and more intense extreme weather events, and long term, caused by changing temperatures and precipitation patterns. Food systems will also be affected through possible internal and international migration, resource- based conflicts and civil unrest triggered by climate change and its impacts. At the same time, it is necessary to strengthen the resilience of rural people and to help them cope with this additional threat to food security. Particularly in the agriculture sector, climate change adaptation can go hand-in-hand with mitigation and organic farming. The conference aims at knowledge exchange on the interrelationship between climate change and food security and ways to deal with the new threats.

To disseminate the impacts of climate change, relieving strategic technologies for creating sustainable agriculture and food security a two days national conference is planned by the IDC Foundation in December 2019 at India international Centre, New Delhi. The conference sessions will include Innovative lead presentation, summary of case studies as per sessions and full length presentations followed by publications etc.
